EAIE Community Summit: Thriving in complexity

The Community Summit is back! Mark your calendars for 08–09 March and join this engaging networking and learning event that will focus on the complex times we live in. More than an online meeting, during the Community Summit you can share best practices, meet with peers and be inspired for the rest of the semester. Registration opens on 07 February and will be free for members.

Theme: Thriving in complexity

“Life is messy.” This simple sentence captures a profound truth about the world we operate in today as international educators: complexity is everywhere around us. Student and staff needs and identities are multi-dimensional and nuanced. Institutional objectives are ambitious and broad in scope. The social, economic, political and environmental changes facing our communities and our countries are fluid and interlocking.  

So, how do we make sense of these realities and rise effectively to the opportunities and challenges they present? The 2023 EAIE Community Summit: Thriving in complexity will bring together the EAIE community to discuss these dynamics and offer information and inspiration to help you move toward the future with new energy and highly practical insights.


  • Join for two days of interactive online sessions to discuss the changing field of international education
  • Meet with old friends and new colleagues from the EAIE community to share frontline experiences and solutions 
  • Hear from a range of expert speakers and gain practical insights for your career and institution 
  • Connect and network online in the dynamic EAIE virtual platform that you know

EAIE members can register free of charge, and non-members can register for €119. Not a member? For only €141 extra, you can become a member for 2023 and attend the event for free as well as benefit from member perks and discounts throughout the year.
